United Technologies Aviation Services
United Technologies Aviation Services (UTAS) is an international organisation with several strategically-located. major aircraft engine, landing gear and component maintenance facilities. The engine main centre at Prestwick Airport required a heavy floor finish throughout the 23,000 sq. m. workshop floor, which would withstand aggressive aviation lubricants such as Skydrol, withstand heavy duty-usage and give a bright, colourful appearance to visiting customers.
Ashley Flooring vacuum-blasted the entire floor over a rolling programme that allowed maintenance production to continue whilst a three-coat, epoxy-resin coating system with a Skydrol-resistant p.u. seal was progressively applied through the plant. Line-marking and zebra crossing were formed in the same coatings and the result is a cleaning, hardwearing finish which makes a more pleasant working environment, which protecting the concrete from chemical attack and impregnation.
